Unreasonable Institute was boosted by the enterpreneurs Daniel Epstein, Teju Ravilochan, Tyler Hartung y Vladimir Dubovsky, and it´s inspired in the idea of George Bernard Shaw who said that “Reasonable person adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable or ilogic persists trying to adapt the world to himself. All the progress depends on unreasonable person”. The founder Daniel Epstein, who was the last year in Spain giving a conference at Teamlabs, was awarded by Inc. Magazine as one of the best 30 enterpreneurs of highest impact. In 2013, him and Richard Branson received the award “Enterpreneur of the World” granted by “Global Entrepreneurship Forum” .
